That should be good. Can even use 10w30, too.

Stay with the 5W 30 SAE. It is what is recommended, and the current classification is SM.
Meet all these specs, and you are set to go.
Be certain to purchase quality oil. It doesn't need to be synthetic necessarily, but the engine oil is the life blood of the engine. Don't skimp here.
If the car has high mileage (>140K), consider a high-mileage alternative. The chemical and detergent package is better suited to the greater miles.

Good Luck and Merry Christmas
